This nursery design reveal has been a long time coming! It’s been in the works for quite some time (as you may have seen on our Instagram), but we had a long delay on the butterfly chandelier, so we had to wait until that got installed to photograph. Covid-related delays are still a huge problem in the design industry, but luckily the nursery furniture industry is fairing better. So excited to finally get to share this nursery with you!

The biggest statement in this nursery is, of course, the blush peony wallpaper. It’s so pretty in person and has an almost watercolor-like feel. Our client wanted this nursery to be on the traditional side, but also wanted some modern elements, so we went with the all acrylic crib. Having the acrylic crib also helps the room feel more open, and doesn’t block as much of the wallpaper wall.

We kept the rug on the more neutral side so as not to compete with the wallpaper. It’s a gorgeous pattern with swirling soft colors in neutrals and pinks, and it’s super soft too. It didn’t photograph the best, but it really is a stunner in person.

You can see the whole gold butterfly chandelier in this shot! This piece was backordered for months, and then even more months, but it finally came and ties the whole room together! You can also see that we had space for a two chairs in this nursery, which is a huge bonus since both parents can relax in here at the same time (or grandparents). One is a regular nursery glider and the other is an accent chair. There’s also a bench as well!
There were also a lot of windows in here, so we ended up going with fully custom blackout drapery to make sure we didn’t have any light-leak issues. If you look closely, you can see the blush detailing down the sides of the drapery.
Even though we had statement wallpaper in this nursery, the artwork over the changing table is probably the most spectacular thing in the room. These pieces are large and actually 3D—the butterflies are paper cut outs that fly on top of the chinoiserie background. It also has an ombre tone, so it fades from neutral to blush. It’s seriously amazing!
For the changing table, we went with a white dresser. You can’t see in the photos, but the dresser has a texture on it which gives it even more appeal. We added the acrylic changing tray to coordinate with the acrylic crib and add a little extra organization.
And those peonies—those are faux! They are absolutely the best faux flowers I’ve ever seen. They even feel real!
We also decided to add a little mobile over the crib for a little extra detail. It’s lightweight and hung high enough that the baby can’t reach it when she’s old enough to stand up in the crib.
How do you feel about the combo of traditional and modern?

If you’re curious about our nursery design process, we created the rendering above for the client. We did a few versions of this until we landed on the right edits. We created a floor plan as well, and a big shopping list for all the items so everything is all organized and easy to keep track of. This was a local nursery design here in Orange County, but we also do E-Designs all across the country!
